Dabangg2 came with lots of hype, hoopla and anticipation. The voices of 200Cr, 400Cr etc were coming from all quarters.
WOM: Dabangg2 is carrying a good report though it is lower than Dabangg. The WOM is at par with Bodyguard or Ek Tha Tiger. Those who are going expecting “Dabangg” brand of entertainment are liking it.
Salman’s act is getting appreciation though not as much as Wanted or Dabangg as those films had novelty factor. Here Salman is repeating himself. Dabangg2 is also getting compared with Dabangg and here the sequel has slight edge in its favor but not a decisive edge. All in all Dabangg2 is a good “predictable” masala entertainer and is true to its brand.
BO Verdict: Dabangg2 will collect Rs 140-145 Cr and will emerge a super hit. The Christmas holiday on Dec 25 will help the business by Rs 5 Cr. Three clean week is also a good news and may add few more crores.
